LONDON: This is with reference to Sadia Ahmed’s piece for Speaker’s corner titled ‘Wait your turn, sir’ (May 9).
We are perennially unhappy because we are ungrateful for the things we have. We lack patience and manners. The reason why we are impatient and ill-mannered is because we believe we are better than everyone else — and this extends to religion as well where in particular many of us think we are superior. Most of us wax lyrical on religion but cannot even follow one of its basic tenets of ‘haqooqul ibad.’
